it's rather weird situation in my opinion.

samba is completely free software, if You don't pay money for it, why 
developers should be responsible for not guessing your thoughts ? You are 
free to choose between reading documentation (and changing "comment=" to 
whatever You want to) and choosing paid software with paid support, so 
other people will read documentation and do what You want them to do.

Your way of asking is very strange, sure.
